Mom, are you busy? What a silly question for me to ask! I am sure at this current moment if you look around you, there are dishes in the sink, piles of laundry that need to be folded and children that are begging for your attention. You feel pulled in every direction with their questions: What’s for supper? Can you bring me to my friend’s house? Can you help me with my homework?
